Huntoon and her two Little daughters were on their Way around Fountain Lake drive they met near the Creamery three teams driving abreast. Mrs. Huntoon turned out. Giving almost the entire Road but the Drivers of the three teams paid no attention to her and apparently made no Effort to turn out. One of the rigs struck the left front wheel of mrs la unto on s buggy tearing out All the the spokes and the horse became frightened and ran away. Fortunately the buggy struck a Post a Short distance away and the occupants were thrown out but mrs. Huntoon who Clung to the lines was dragged thirty feet or More through the mud before the horse could be stopped by la. E. Schuk Utecht who had witnessed the Accident. Mrs. Huntoon was badly shaken up and considerably bruised but the children fared better. Or. Schuknecht took the horse Home and informed in a. Morgan of what had happened. Or. Morgan at once hitched up and drove out after mrs. Huntoon and the children. As soon As he had brought them safely Home he started after the men who had caused the Accident. After running into mrs.

Morgan accompanied by chief Chamberlain started in Pursuit. They overtook two of the teams near the poor farm and passing them turned about and met the men. At first the a denied knowing anything about the affair but were soon cornered. Having identified the men or. Morgan and chief Chamberlain returned to town.

Huntoon and the children in fact it seems almost miraculous that they were not killed or seriously injured. For those who caused the Accident there seems to be no possible excuse and the prevailing sentiment is that they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law.
